I am Ghanaian born photographer and i hail from the Eastern region of Ghana. Fortunate to have my dad as a photojournalist, i grew up being photographed a lot together with my siblings. This however made me appreciate the value of photographs and how transformation and progress can be seen through that medium. Photography has a lot of power, thus a photograph can carry a lot of emotions, information, details, evidence, etc.

I am inspired by the moments we lose to memory. I hope to bottle up happy moments in my photographs to save for later. Perhaps unsurprisingly, these photos reference memories of home and family. This collection of work comes from my desire to preserve important those beautiful moments in my life.

I developed interest in photography whilst in High school. Presbyterian Boys Senior High School was the genesis. I started taking pictures with my phone, i loved documenting everything even when it was illegal to possess phones in school. So most of my classmates aren’t shocked that i pursued it professionally. I decided to pursue it in my second year of university. I studied Marine and Fisheries Science but i had to also focus on photography to make life meaningful. I remember telling myself  “I have to do something, something i love, something that comes to me easily”
